COVID-19 update

We have not stopped working throughout the lockdown and continued to deliver our services for essential works, and to complete existing projects where safe to do so.

We have now implemented new measures to ensure the safety of all personnel, enabling us to continue to operate and actively welcome all new enquiries.

We continue to think carefully before starting any new works where our workers may be unable to maintain a safe social distance at all times.

Like everyone else adapting to the ‘new normal’, we’ve changed the way we work to ensure the best levels of safety we can achieve for everyone.

Our main office is back open as a central hub of operations, with social distancing measures in place. Some staff have continued working remotely from home, and direct email and mobile contact is still preferred, for regular customers who know the person they wish to contact. We are working to ensure that all our staff and customers can continue to live and work in a safe environment.

Keep safe!

I would like to pass on some very positive feedback regarding the vessel crew in particularly. Damien, Ryan and Tommy were so  helpful for the duration of the works, they were always on hand when we needed them, and very competent with all the deck operations. They had a very positive regard for health and safety, which made it nice and easy to work alongside each other. They were happy to discuss various ways to undertake the operations to find the safest way that we were all happy with. We really appreciate this – the combination of our equipment experience and their operational experience meant everything went smoothly, was done safely, and the equipment was deployed exactly as required.
